S4 Starter Questions www.mathsrevision.com S4 ALWAYS comes up in exam !!

13-Jun-14Compiled by Mr. Lafferty Maths Dept. Length of the smaller side www.mathsrevision.com Learning Intention Success Criteria 1.Use Pythagoras Theorem to find the length of smaller side. 1.To show how Pythagoras Theorem can be used to find the length of the smaller side. 2.Show all working. S4

13-Jun-14Compiled by Mr. Lafferty Maths Dept. Pythagoras Revisited www.mathsrevision.com Two key points when dealing with right-angled triangles The longest side in a right-angled triangle is called The HYPOTENUSE The HYPOTENUSE is ALWAYS opposite the right angle a b c c 2 = a 2 + b 2 y x z (xz) 2 = (xy) 2 + (yz) 2 S4

13-Jun-14 Compiled by Mr. Lafferty Maths Dept. Calculating the Hypotenuse 8 12 c Q2.Calculate the longest length of the right- angled triangle below. www.mathsrevision.com Example 1

13-Jun-14 Compiled by Mr. Lafferty Maths Dept. Calculating the Hypotenuse Aeroplane b = 8 a = 15 c Lennoxtown Airport Q1.An aeroplane is preparing to land at Glasgow Airport. It is over Lennoxtown at present which is 15km from the airport. It is at a height of 8km. How far away is the plane from the airport? www.mathsrevision.com Example 2

S4 S4 Starter Questions To get money from a cash machine, you need an appropriate card and a four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). Gary knows: His PIN contains the digits 2, 5, 6 and 9 2 is the first digit One possible PIN is shown in the table. Copy and complete the table with all possible PINs.

13-Jun-14Compiled by Mr. Lafferty Maths Dept. Example :Find the length of side a ? Length of the smaller side To find the length of the smaller side of a right-angled triangle we simply rearrange Pythagoras Theorem. www.mathsrevision.com 20cm 12cm a cm Check answer ! Always smaller than hypotenuse S4
